Sprucing up the bathroom can be as easy as setting up a vignette on the counter or time-consuming that it involves retiling and adding new fixtures. Both options entail preparing a budget, finalizing your list of must-dos, and looking for design pegs, to name a few.

Whether you’re happy with simple updates or ready to take the plunge and opt for a renovation, unexpected ideas will surely go a long way. Surprise yourself and your guests with these tips:

1. Go all out with wall art.

 

It's common to see wall accents in the bathroom—some opt for framed prints and there are those who prefer paintings and photographs. If you have a blank wall in the space, you can go all out with wall decor. Don't settle for just one piece—collect art in different sizes and shapes for a fun and captivating gallery.

2. Add twists to well-loved themes.

 

Who says the beach-inspired theme is limited to a blue and white combo only? Step out of the mold by opting for a black and white pairing. Personalize your T&B with a striped shower curtain, a black bath mat, and accessories that speak of the beach. If you miss the feel of the sun, sand, and sea—add accessories with a distressed finish.

Visit H&M Home, SM Makati for accessories.

3. Take a chance with pink subway tiles.

 

We've seen it all—black, white, and in different patterns—but how many times have you seen pink subway tiles? Invest in your loo and add this unique detail. Since you already have a solid color in the space, opt for white fixtures and keep the accessories at a minimum to keep it from being overdecorated.

4. Invest in big woven storage pieces.

Aside from having woven hampers and bins, you can have a big woven basket with lid that can fit under your sink or shelf in the bathroom. Use it to keep extra toiletries and supplies. You can also use it to store fresh towels.

Find woven pieces at Kultura Filipino, SM Megamall, Building A Unit 121 B, Ortigas.

5. Play with colors and patterns.

 

Don't limit yourself to just one tile color. Depending on the look you have in mind, you can mix and match colors and sizes. For a minimalist-inspired T&B, work with black and white tiles to create patterns. Use the photo above as peg—with creativity, the lower part of the wall showcases curves and shapes by simply alternating the tiles. You can consult with a professional to see how you can make this work in your space.

Bonus idea: Do you have a ladder shelf in your bathroom? Paint it black for an extra sleek and sophisticated touch.
